that’s a lotta vuv’ed
Did Rush just say that TGO’s new book is the best selling non-fiction in history?
I was downstairs and just heard the end of his comment as I was walking back up.
Rush was talking about the coming legislation to force Catholic doctors and hospitals to perform abortion. Well, we are already discussing that in Whatcom County because our local hospital is Catholic and has refused to take part in assisted suicide, which was really aimed at gearing up for socialized medicine and offering the alternative of suicide to those who are denied treatment.
I do I do - out of all 4 kittens, I had to pick the moron.
I swear, this kitteh will not learn ANYTHING.
Genny can read
you in heap big truble
Genny sleepin - heh heh heh
aawww, she doesn’t have to be smart, she’s pretty! Anyways she’s still a young kitteh, give her some time.
Good for Rush for saying we can’t do anything about global warming, global cooling, etc. I’ve been watching that Animal Armageddon series on TV, and those disasters put our minimal warming and cooling trends in perspective, where they belong!
Pelosi’s district includes Haight-Ashbury
‘nuf said, Rush
“Invention is the mother of necessity.” hee hee!
give her some catnip
that’ll keep her away from the keybd
oops, i did it again..that was meant for WBC
I get worse fuel mileage with methanol laced gasoline than I do with straight gasoline.
shhhhhh - I think Genny is a liberal, if she thinks she’s gifted, I’ll have to pay her subsidies.
hey, that looks like Genny!
cats...........another white meat
stimulate her w/catnip
That’s because methanol has less potential energy than gasoline. You may get a little cleaner burn but you have to burn more to go the same distance.
Genny is probably smarter than you think. If she won’t leave you alone when your FReepin, it’s because all cats KNOW what takes your attention away from them.
It’s mostly that she still bites me a lot and gets on the counters - I don’t want her doing that and the spray bottle is only temporary.
RE: Rush’s comments today:
HIS ABORTION RECORD IS NO LIE
Rich Lowry Posted: 3:50 am August 19, 2008
Barack Obama had a mini Bob Dole moment after the Saddleback presidential forum the other night. Asked on the Christian Broadcasting Network about a controversy over his opposition to legislation in Illinois protecting infants born alive after surviving abortions, an irked Obama replied, “I hate to say that people are lying, but here’s a situation where folks are lying.”
Obama’s line recalled Dole’s plaint on national TV after the first George Bush beat him in New Hampshire in 1988, “Tell him to stop lying about my record.” Dole’s outburst would live in infamy as evidence of his distemper. Obama’s problem isn’t his temperament, but the unsustainable exertions necessary to attempt to square his reasonable-sounding rhetoric on abortion with the extremism of his record.
Asked by Pastor Rick Warren when a baby gets rights, Obama said, “I’m absolutely convinced that there is a moral and ethical element to this issue.” This is a crashing banality couched as thoughtfulness. If Obama is so sensitive to the moral element of the issue, why does he want to eliminate any existing restrictions on the procedure?
In 2007, Obama told the Planned Parenthood Action Fund that the Freedom of Choice Act would be the first piece of legislation that he would sign as president. The act would not only codify Roe v. Wade, but wipe out all current federal, state and local restrictions on abortion that pass muster under Roe, including the Hyde Amendment prohibiting federal funding of abortion. This is not the legislative priority of a man keenly attuned to the moral implications of abortion.
At Saddleback, Obama said determining when a baby gets rights is “above his pay grade.” Leave aside that presidents usually have an opinion about who deserves legal rights. If Obama is willing to permit any abortions in any circumstances, he’d better possess an absolute certainty about the absolute moral nullity of the fetus.
He told Warren that he favors “limits on late-term abortions, if there is an exception for the mother’s health.” But the exception he wants is so broad it makes the restriction meaningless. Obama opposed the partial-birth bill that passed the House and the Senate, 281-142 and 64-34, respectively, and has criticized the Supreme Court for upholding the law.
It’s not just partial-birth abortion where Obama is outside the mainstream, but on the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act - the occasion for his televised accusation of lying. In 2000, Congress took up legislation to make it clear that infants born alive after abortions are persons under the law. The National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League opposed the bill as an assault on Roe, but it passed the House 380-15.
Back in the Illinois state Senate in 2001, Obama spoke out against and voted “present” - effectively “no” - on a similar bill, aligning himself with the tiny pro-abortion rump of 15 congressmen.
In 2002, Congress considered the legislation again, this time adding a “neutrality clause” specifying that it didn’t affect Roe one way or another. The bill passed without any dissenting votes in the House or the Senate and was signed into law.
In 2003 in Illinois, Obama still opposed a state version of the law. He long claimed that he voted against it because it didn’t have the same “neutrality clause” as the federal version. But the National Right to Life Committee has unearthed documents showing that the Illinois bill was amended to include such a clause, and Obama voted to kill it anyway.
Confronted about this on CBN, he said the pro-life group was lying.
But his campaign has now admitted that he had the legislative history wrong. Obama either didn’t know his own record, or was so accustomed to shrouding it in dishonesty that it had become second nature.
Here’s a central dilemma of Obama’s candidacy. Nothing in his career supports his contention that he’s a postpartisan healer. So, as someone as splenetic as Dole might put it, he’s forced to lie about his record.
He’s a walking contradiction with consequences.
I stole that one, myself...
